Onggi / Industrial Design


Kim Chi is such a familiar food for Korean. However nowadays, younger generation doesn’t know how to make Kim Chi. We found the necessity of self-consciousness that we may not be able to inherit our traditional Kim Chi to the future generation because of these problems we have. Also we considered the lack of Korean style food maker in the market, stands in contrast to western culture having toasters or coffee makers. So we propose Kim Chi making home appliance ‘Ong Gi’ to respect various preferences and interpret ‘Kim Jang’ in contemporary view.
